. the president is facing a fierce foreign policy attack from romney right now. is this part of the romney campaign reboot we've been hearing a lot about? >> it absolutely is, zoraida. the bumps in the road quote from "60 minutes" have handed the romney campaign an opportunity to talk about something other than his tax returns or that fund-raising video where he yet sized 47% of americans. this has taken over the economy has the main thrust of the romney campaign message. they're hitting obama hard on this. for example, listen to what paul ryan, romney's running mate, had to say about obama's foreign policy yesterday while campaigning in ohio, zoraida. >> i think the president on too many occasions has deferred our foreign policy leadership to the u.n. security council, to the u.n., this means russia and china get to veto what we want to do. why do we want to give them that kind of clout over our national security interests? >> the goal here is to paint president obama as projecting weakness. ryan yesterday compared the situation in the middle east to tehran in 1979. you know, calling to m

the president and mitt romney in the same city giving dueling foreign policy speeches. the romney campaign season opening in the wake of the terror attack in libya questions about the president's mideast policy. now as you note both men here in the battleground of ohio today sort of shadowing one another, domestic issues more the focus of course here in the midwest. 18 electoral votes in ohio. no republican has won the white house without winning this state first. as you know "the new york times" cbs battleground poll shows the president up 10 points. 53 to 4 3-point it. there is a lot of talk about republicans that there has been an over sam blink of democratic voters and the votes are being screwed against the romney campaign. nonetheless if you look at "the new york times" battleground poll, for example, previously the president only had a single digit lead here in ohio, now up to a double digit lead. even if it's off a little bit the bottom line is the trajectory is favoring the president at least for now arthel. arthel: on top of all that i should say the economy there in ohio seems t
foreign policy speech in next couple weeks. details on that forthcoming. which illustrates on romney and paul ryan's campaign which was thought focused on the jobs and economy has been forced into a broadened portfolio to include foreign policy and international affairs. it turned out to be fortuitous. there was a lot of speculation that mitt romney's relative inexperience one-term governor of massachusetts up against a commander-in-chief that claimed to kill bin laden would be a real liability. we've seen in recent weeks mr. romney has been able to get on offense. he was criticized for his early statements suggesting that the cairo embassy remarks attacks on benghazi were inappropriate. when you look at the subsequent list of alleged gaffs, misstatements and inappropriate rhetoric the president has been accused of even suggesting egypt isn't an ally made it possible for mr. romney to take more offensive approach on foreign policy and go up against the president to suggest he has not been a strong leader. bill: carl we'll be back to you in a moment. as soon as we see governor romney
policy speech to again outline his criticisms of the president. romney's argument has been obama leadership worldwide has weakened the stature of the united states and has made it more difficult for us to hold our adversaries at bay and put us in adversarial position with a lot of our allies. most notably mitt romney can't go a foreign policy speech once without saying in his view the obama administration has thrown israel under the bus. he has specifically been playing to his relationship with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. they have known each other for almost 30 years when mitt romney took his overseas trip he spent a lot of time with netanyahu and referred to each other by first names and very informal and on brightly spotlighted international stage. romney believes he will strengthen u.s. alliances with israel and that is absolutely necessary and he suggested mr. obama too often has been disrespectful and given the cold shoulder to the jewish state that becomes emblem attic of all of that that is not what the clinton cgi speech is all about. republicans for d

on the fox news poll suggests that governor romney could turn things around. when asked whether the country should mostly stay on course or whether many policies needed to change, 73% of respondents said change. bret? >> bret: mother jones released another video. it says, shows governor romney in another bad light. 1985 video. mitt romney's discussing bain capital's business strategy that included buying stakes in undervalued companies and then eventually harvesting them at a profit. obama campaign jumped all over that word. what what is the romney camp saying about that? >> the romney campaign came out quickly after that and said this d. "in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way." we should point out harvesting is a common term in private equity, as in harvesting the investment. a manager i talked to said it's not a bad thing because at that time you have grown a company and created
with the idea that romney actually has a plan. so he has to show a little more leg in terms of policy than he did at the convention. >> his race from the beginning is, i'm not barack obama, he is. >> how is that working? >> but here's the problem, you act as though his policies are actually popular. the vast majority of americans, the polling shows ryan's pick add medicare at front and center, especially in florida -- he has a problem -- >> i'm not arguing that. >> i don't think he's going to be able to avoid. i think you are going to get some substance. i think you need to get some personality. you need to get some spontaneity. i'm not sure either of these two guys is good at spontaneity. if you can fix spontaneity, you've achieved success in politics. >> here's one good piece of news for romney. whatever's happening in sort of the inside washington game, i saw a poll today, i think it was abc news said, 52% of americans expect obama to win. something like 25%, 30% expect romney to win. with the viewers, may not not -- maybe they won't all be watching. >> skewed polls. >> christie is saying,
york city right now. carl, was it expected mitt romney would start the day on foreign policy? >> reporter: well, sure. clinton global initiative virtually guaranteed that. after the terror attacks in benghazi that left the u.s. ambassador dead the mr. romney was clear he would give additional foreign policy speeches in today's speech in front. cgi. we can expect him toe be particularly critical are president for what romney has said has been an inadequate assertion of american values overseas during this mounting violence across the middle east and north africa. this morning at this event with president clinton mr. romney joked about how nice it is occasionally to have introduction from bill clinton and suggested he will wait for the bounce. a reference to the one that president obama got after the democratic national convention insofar clinton's speech was the one best received there. romney holding his partisan punches talked a lot about the world's problems. he says he has a plan to deal with u.s. foreign aid would in essence link it to trade and develop nations willing to

on the economy, the corner stone of romney's campaign and those voters also say they believe romney's policies will favor the rich. >> there's been a consistent line of afact from the president. >> i do not believe that another round of tax cuts for millionaires are going to bring good jobs back to ohio. >> reporter: it features promptly in mr. obama's television ads which has saturated the air waves. the president and his team are out spending the romney team on television though both campaigns have spent more here than in any other battleground state. the president and groups supporting him have spent $49.9 million in ohio while romney and outside groups have spent $42.5 million. the romney camp says it's not bothered by poll numbers say they have confidence by their own internal polling and believe they are making inroads in ohio and message of lower spending and debt. >> the status quo has not worked. we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we won't have four more years of barack obama. >> now if you had any doubt about the importance of ohio look at the campaign schedule today. t
is doing better. argument between romney and obama. who can do a better job of bringing the country totally back? >> republican governor john kasich argues his policies like reducing taxes and balancing the budget made the difference here. >> nothing else matters other than issue of jobs, economy, and prosperity. who is going to deliver it. >> that is what voters like kim may want to hear. she was out of work and without a lead for a new job, she started her own consulting company from inside the home she was once afraid to lose. as a constant stream of political commercials roll across her television, kim and pat will vote republican, saying they know what they want in their next president. >> be strong. >> be the man. stand up. this is what we need to do. i'm going to take full control of this. don't worry. >> this is the way we're going. >> the way ohio goes in november, having picked last eight presidential winners will tell the rest of america a lot. in columbus, ohio, bill hemmer, fox news. >> bret: with that, don't forget tonight's next to vote question. who will win ohio? text sr1 t
's -- krauthammer talks about -- romney does talk about foreign policy, a 20th century entitlement system, he talks about america and the need to be unapologetic. he talks about all these things. the problem romney has is he can't go a week talking about these things because he is tripping over his own words and gaffes whether the clint eastwood moment or running to criticize obama for the libya attacks and each and every time he tries to build momentum around these themes, build a larger place to get obama out -- he over shadows. >> you just said theme. that is what charles krauthammer says. he said if there were an over arching thing mitt romney was carrying from foreign policy -- >> you can only build that theme if you do it day in and day out and obama has done his theme which is romney is this rich guy who is going to outsource everything. he's been tripped up every now and then but by and large has been consistent. mitt romney has been his own worst enemy. >> that is the problem kelly. they don't have a big over arching theme as charles krauthammer says that carries them through a week where
ad that shows romney looking directly into the camera. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: translation, pay no attention to the man in that hidden camera video. >> the 47% who are with him, who are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state'
policies. look, mitt romney's supposed strength has been the economy. he's been running for president for five years. so it's not that voters don't know him. it's that they know him too well. he has lost his edge on the economy in all of the recent polls. so voters are now looking at him to say, okay, if we don't trust him on the economy which has been the foundation for his platform for running for president, we certainly don't trust him on any of the other issues that are important to us. like education, like housing, like jobs. and so we don't like what he is telling us. and especially when you have the video that came out, it's absolutely devastating. so it's going to be very tough to turn this around. >> let me set that up just for a second. mary, you got a lot of attention for something you said to me right here in "the situation room" last week. let's listen and talk about it. >> many of us have been waiting for mitt romney to say this clearly and loudly, there are makers and takers, there are producers and there are parasites. i hope he doesn't just double down, quadruples dow
regulation an anti-federal healthcare as you could get. the policy have the states coming and mitt romney must be shaking his head at this president just gaining. see that exchange. in the most electorate rich state, this is the state of them. expanding business, defines everything that the president preaches you have to do to improve this. it's romney getting the business. if the polls hold up, mitt romney potentially getting the shaft. i don't think things are that simple or they work out that way, ask yourself this when you look at electoral map. how is that a race decided across the country is showing something different across the republican-run state, states that are beating the national average. jobs gained, businesses charged and volt voters. they say it's testment to what happens when you put republican in charge of the state. wouldn't it be a pit if it means democrats staying in charge of the country? e-mails are pouring in fast and furious. people just can't believe the impact that my one-on-one with paul ryan at the republican convention had on the presidential race. i got us
by as much as ten points in the state. trade policy with china will be front and center today. romney claims president obama hasn't been tough enough. and this morning, the obama campaign is slamming romney for his investment in chinese companies. >>> new worries on wall street. global stocks down sharply today, partly because of growing unrest in europe. violent protests erupted in spain and greece, against severe new government spending cuts. >>> meanwhile, here at home, despite encouraging news about the housing market, investors are concerned after the federal reserve announced that he's not sure the fed's pollies will be enough to get the economy going again. >>> and the nfl and the locked out referees have reportedly returned to the bargaining table, amid the controversial call by replacement referees monday night. green bay lost that game, sort of. and now, the city's mayor has written a letter to roger goodell saying the scandal jeopardizes green bay's economy. >>> and coppertone sunscreen, will settle a lawsuit for claiming it was water-proof. >>> and whitney houston's daughter, bob
be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be talking about ideas. allow the super pacs to be do that, these outside groups tending hundreds of millions of dollars on television ads, let them be the ones who go out and attack barack obama, not mitt romney. so in many ways i think there's a level of frustration with the romney campaign from conservatives that it has not been as effective. the unemployment rate is over 8%. republicans think they should be winning and right now it's neck and neck if not a bit of a lead for president obama. >> of course the presidenti
the president on foreign policy, right? >> they are. both mitt romney and paul ryan are making the case that the president has been unclear, lacks transparency, and seems to be reluctant to refer to the attacks in libya as terrorism. they further distance themselves, they didn't actually buy into senator john barrasso's assertion that it's a cover-up, but they're clearly upset to see they see the whole thing as further illustration of the president's inannual to assert the u.s. leadership and strength clearly around the world. watch. >> the white house and the president are continuing not to admit what their own admission is saying and i think it's pretty clear that they haven't wanted to level with the american people. look, we expect candor from the president and transparency. and he continues to refuse to acknowledge what is said by the other members of the administration. this was a terrorist attack. we were attacked apparently by al-qaeda and it's a very troubling development. >> this is part of the story of when we project weakness overseas by gutting the military, with the presid
! >> mitt romney and paul ryan have the experience and record and they have the public policy plans to put america back to work. before we give a warm miami valley welcome to the next president and vice president of the united states i want you to give a warm welcome to a colleague of mine and friend who snuck across the border from kentucky today. he is a doctor who understands the dangers of obama care. he is a fiscal conservative who understands the nature of the record debts and deficits and understands they are a danger to our country and kids. finally, folks, he is someone who believes that we can not afford another four years of this. gentlemen, i give you mr. paul. >> anybody think it is time for a new president? >> anybody here think like i do that obama care is still unconstitutional? >> yeah. >> anybody here offended and mortified to see people around the world burning the american flag? >> yeah! >> president obama's response? send them more money. >> boo! >> they are attacking our embassies, burning our flag, torturing and imprisoning the man who helped us get bin laden. what i
policies on the economy and taxes, and that could be seen as a help to mr. romney. >> brian: mitt romney is apparent and this is the story about being a favorite. do you have a favorite? i never heard it admitted. in terms of a kid, i have notates. steve, can you say the same? peter is listening. >> he is listening and so are any other childrenment do i have a favorite? no. are there times when one of the other children might be bugging me more than the others? perhaps. take a look right there. that is a picture of a canadian radio show host named buzz bishop. here he is -- this all started, he blogged that, quote, if i were to be absolutely honest, my oldest son is the favorite of the two. why did he say that? here is buzz bishop. >> need to take that language and call him my favorite? he's just the one i relate to easier and if that means he's my favorite and those are -- that's the language, i don't think that's too evil. >> gretchen: i understand this, okay, especially from a father's really get into parenthood, guys speak for me if i'm wrong -- when you can actually, like he said, d
this country, my heartaches for the people i've seen. >> in his new ad romney looks at voters. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. my policies will make things better for them. >> barack obama was in ohio, too, talking less about his record and more about romney. >> i don't believe we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims. >> the auto bailout helps the president here. ohio unemployment is 7.2%, better than most states. >> i need to you register to vote. i need you to start voting. six days from now on october 2nd. >> early voting, they started last friday in south dakota. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, washington. >> still ahead at 6:00, a guy couple is filing a lawsuit over their engagement photo. we'll tell you why. >> i'm jeff ranieri in the weather center with hazy outside but you know, not too hot. you look toward tomorrow we'll see near 90 inland. temperatures are expected to reach near 100. this is a lot of food for 4 bucks. yeah... think they made a mistake? i don't know - maybe. the fried cheese melt
that option off the table. >> seems like a little softer stance there from mitt romney coming out now, too. no talk of red lines. so what's going on overall? >> well, clearly the president's policy is the one that everyone is coalescing around. even mitt romney finds it hard to disagree with a notion that we should have a diplomatic solution. some of his advisers like john bolton, however, argued for bombing yesterday. but that flies in the face of a broad swath of bipartisan security experts who argue that bombing iran would facility their acquisition of a nuclear weapon. >> okay, joel rubin. many thanks for coming on. >> thank you. >> office politics. savannah guthrie tells me about her latest interview with president obama and the questions she wish she had asked him. why should our wallets tell us what our favorite color is? every room deserves to look great. and every footstep should tell us we made the right decision. so when we can feel our way through the newest, softest, and most colorful options... ...across every possible price range... ...our budgets won't be picking the style.
? >> well he is disingauged, well the president is disingauged. romney is pointing out a very concrete pattern on disingaugement on america's foreign policy. we're projecting weakness at a time we need to projecting strength. we're showing feebleness when we need to show resolve. i was amazed in the tick-tock on the call he made on the 12th of septem president that it was revealed that this was the first time the president had talk to the libyan president. i can't imagine that in this part of the world whether a new leader takes office that the president of the united states doesn't seem to understand how important that personal relationship is and didn't bother to call the president of libya when he was sworn into office earlier this summer. bill: one more thing. i just want to make this quick. i don't mean to cut you off but in interest of time here, where does this go, if anywhere? >> well, look, it's eating up time on the calendar if it had not happen we would be talking about economy, deficits, jobs and affordable care act. if mitt romney is going to use this successfully he needs
at tufts university says one set of issues that could hurt romney with this age group is his conservative stance on social policy. >> i think all the social issues is a complete distraction and damaging with young people because on the whole they are pretty liberal on social issues and they are not interested in them as we found from our polls. he needs to stick to talking >> woodruff: for whatever reason, many young voters are still up for grabs says john >> the largest segment of undecided voters in america i think will be found on college campuses. we're seeing more than 10% of 18- to 24-year-olds at this point in the campaign are still undecided. so that is a significant number. >> woodruff: and it's more significant when you recognize how large a group it is. >> we have more millennials today than baby boomers in this country, almost one in four american citizens is part of this younger millennial generation. >> woodruff: that fact is not lost on the candidates. last month president obama came to columbus and used the buckeye football stadium in an analogy to describe mitt romney as
